I generally try to keep a low profile.
I was never one to become fixated with my identity.
It is true, I may consist of leftover scraps,
crumbs of half-eaten civilisations long perished,
But make no mistake.
I am powerful. I can become anything I want,
and I can survive the harshest conditions.
So look out for me if you want to learn about your past.
because I befriend conflict and chaos
I thrive where the hammer meets the stone,
where the sea and earth settle their differences.
And I wait, patiently, until they have annihilated each other,
Because I am all that remains.
I am the destruction, and I am the hope.
The supernova, and the stardust.

I love this message. You definitely are a keystone. All these descriptions are signs of strength. Your kindred soul enlightens me every time I read your works. Thank you for giving the spirit this season and always. I wish we lived close by each other. Our discussions would be quite tapped. Merry everything and happy always. Peter

Thank you Peter. All the best, hope you’re well 💙
I like to play with Sand, and its little cousins, Silt and Clay.
